This is a particularly useful site that has names and addresses for all house and senate committees and subcommittees.  It has links to a number of other interest groups and “Updated Breaking News.”  For instance the House Appropriations Higher Education Subcommittee next meets again tomorrow, Wednesday March 3 from 8-12.  Additionally, student rallies and students marching at the capital will coincide with this meeting.
